Lieutenant Joseph Coleman Alderson, of Wheeling, W. Va., distinguished among the Confederate soldiers of Greenbrier county for faithful and devoted service, was born at Locust Grove, Amherst county, Va., October 19, 1839, the home of his maternal grandfather, John Coleman. His father, Rev. L. A. Alderson, a few years later removed to the old stone mansion opposite the town of Alderson, on the Greenbrier river, where young Alderson was reared. He was educated at the Lewisburg academy and Alleghany college, at Blue Sulphur Springs, an institution which was destroyed by the war. In his senior year at this college he enlisted on April 15, 1861, in the Greenbrier cavalry, a company which served in the West Virginia campaign of 1861 as bodyguard for General Garnett until his death, and afterward as bodyguard to Gen. R. E. Lee, and as his couriers until he left that department. In December following the company was disbanded. Alderson was a young man of remarkable physical development and a famous athlete, qualities which, added to great personal daring, made him a natural leader among his fellows. He devoted his talents to the Confederate cause by raising a new cavalry company, of which he was elected second lieutenant. This company was assigned to the Fourteenth cavalry regiment, and Lieutenant Alderson a few months later organized another company, of which he was made first lieutenant, declining, as in the previous instance, the rank of captain. This became Company A, of the Thirty-sixth Virginia battalion of cavalry, distinguished in the commands of General Jenkins and W. E. Jones. Lieutenant Alderson commanded this company from June 12, 1863, to the close of the war, and was frequently in command of the battalion, acting as major. During his four years' service he never had but eight days' leave of absence from his command. He commanded his company at the fight at Buchanan, Upshur county, was in the fights at Weston, W. Va; Ravenswood and Racine, on the Ohio river; Charleston and Buffalo, W. Va., and in the winter of 1862 was sent on detailed service to Roanoke, Va. Returning in the early summer of 1863, he passed through Lexington, Va., on the day of the interment of the body of Stonewall Jackson, and his company fired the military salute over the dead hero's grave. He next fought at Opequon, captured and brought in eight Yankees at North Mountain Gap, and then participating in the Pennsylvania campaign skirmished every day and night as far as Carlisle, Pa., whence he was sent with an escort of five men to carry important dispatches to General Early, near York, seventy miles away, through the enemy's country, one of his most daring exploits. He was with his command at Gettysburg, carried the first order on the first day from General Ewell to General Rhodes, and at night gave General Lee the first news of the Federal reinforcements. In the cavalry fight which followed from Hagerstown to Williamsport he was wounded by a fragment of shell and disabled two months. In 1864 he was in battle at Jonesville, W. Va; Cumberland Gap, Rogersville, Tenn; Waynesboro, Va., and Pettit's Mill. In the last encounter he was captured by the enemy. His conduct while a prisoner strikingly displayed his unconquerable spirit. He had hardly well started on the road north before he secured the escape of twenty-seven of his Confederate comrades, and while confined at Camp Chase, Ohio, he made three ineffectual attempts to escape by tunneling. He refused alike to take the oath or to give his parole on condition of remaining North. Finally,in February, 1865, he was sent to Fort McHenry and Point Lookout, and in the following month was exchanged at City Point. While on his way to rejoin the army he was informed of the end of the war. He took part, in all, in over two hundred engagements, and his service was frequently of the most arduous character, as in the winter of 1863-64, when he was in daily fighting, and in the Tennessee campaign, under General Jones, when he was on the march every night. Going west in 1865 he had charge of the middle division of the Butterfield overland express through the Indian country until it was broken up by the red men, when he joined his father and farmed near Atchison, Kan. Since 1869 he has resided at Wheeling, and has conducted an extensive insurance business and dealt largely in coal and timber lands. He has declined political advancement, but served as a West Virginia commissioner at the Ohio Valley centennial at Cincinnati in 1888 and at the Washington centennial in New York in 1889. He married Miss Mary, daughter of ex-Gov. Samuel Price, of Virginia.

5 Dec 1912. Major J. Coleman Alderson died Thursday, 28 Nov 1912 in Charleston. He was the eldest son of the Rev. Lewis A. Alderson and was born in Locust Grove, Amherst Co., VA on 29 Oct 1839. He was aged 74. He joined the Confederate Army on 16 Apr 1861 and was a private in the Greenbrier Cavalry. In April 1862 he became a 2nd Lieutenant, and in Dec 1862 a 1st Lieutenant. He was a member of Company A, 36th Battalion Virginia Cavalry, and was in East Tennessee in 1863 under General William E. Jones. He was injured twice, once in Maryland and once in Virginia. He was captured on 12 Jun 1864 and sent to Camp Chase, Ohio. After the war he was in the coal and timber business, and founded Williamson and Bellepoint, and Mt. Lake Park and Loch Lynn Heights in Maryland. In 1874 he married Mary Price, daughter of Gov. Samuel Price of Greenbrier Co. She died in 1895, and 8 years ago he married Mrs. Mary Kirker of Wellsburg, WV. He is survived by his wife and nephew George P. Alderson.

Biography JOSEPH COLEMAN ALDERSON.
MAJOR J. C. ALDERSON is one of the finest specimens of physical manhood in West Virginia, or any other State. He is tall, well proportioned, and for one of his large stature, is active and supple. He is a native of Amherst county, Virginia, having first seen the light at Locust Grove, October 19, 1839. At the death of his grandfather, Esquire Joseph Alderson, in 1845, his father, the late Rev. L. A. Alderson, moved into the old stone mansion, now over one hundred years old, at Alderson’s Eerry on Greenbrier river, immediately opposite the town of Alderson. Here J. C. Alderson was taught by private instructors until he was seventeen years old. He then attended an Academy in Lewisburg, Greenbrier county, and from there he went to Allegheny College at the Blue Sulphur Springs, in the same county, from which institution he graduated in April, 1861. This was a flourishing Baptist educational institution for many years, and was the alma mater of a large number of young men, who resided in that section of the State. Its buildings were destroyed by fire during the late civil war, and the school consequently went down. It was situated in a beautiful vale about one hundred yards from the spring, which possesses remarkable medical properties, and was prior to the war a great health resort. The large brick hotel was burned by General Hunter’s troops, which, returning from what was termed “Hunter’s Lynchburg Raid,” and owing to some imperfection in the title to the property, it has never been rebuilt.
One of Major Alderson’s College friends and class mates at Allegheny relates a circumstance which took place one day at the college that shows how agile our subject was in early life: A countryman came into the campus where perhaps a hundred students were exercising on the beautiful lawn. He rode a horse seventeen hands high, and desired to sell a two-bushel bag of apples that was upon the tall horse’s back. Young Alderson, who was a noted athlete, remarked to the countryman, “Will you give me the bag of apples, if I can jump over your horse’s hack, without touching the hag of apples or the horse?” Mr. Hayseed dismounted, looked at the tall horse, then at the erect and powerful built young man, and replied, “Yes, you may have the entire two bushels of apples, if you can do that.” “Good enough,” said Mr. Alderson. So he doffed his coat, stepped back a few yards, took a vigorous start, and over the horse he leaped with full ten inches between his heels and the horse’s back. Mr. Hayseed promptly emptied the apples upon the ground, remarking that “a man who can do that shouldn’t pay him a cent for all the apples he can eat for the next six months.”
Immediately after leaving college in April, 1861, young Alderson enlisted in the Confederate army (being the third man who volunteered from Greenbrier county), and remained in the service until June 12, 1864, when he was captured by the Federal forces within five miles of his birth place in Amherst county. He was sent to Camp Chase, Ohio, and remained in that noted bastile for nine months, before he was exchanged, six months of the time on one-third rations, and under retaliation. The Major’s cavalry company was the escort of honor at the burial of “Stonewall” Jackson. He delivered the first order to the troops on the Confederate side that opened the battle of Gettysburg. He was a participant in upwards of one hundred battles and skirmishes during the war, and had, at different times, over half his company killed in battle. He never had but eight days leave of absence from his command during his four years service, except what a piece of shell gave him at the battle of Hagerstown, July 6, 1863, two days after the great battle of Gettysburg.
When hostilities closed he went West, and in 1865 and 1866 had charge of the Middle Division of the Butterfield Overland Express Company, on the Smoky Hill river in Kansas and Colorado, extending two hundred and fifty miles through the Indian and buffalo country, from Fort Ellsworth in Kansas, to Fort Wallace in Colorado. The hostile Indians broke up the express company by killing their employers, burning their property, and stealing their stock. The Major then went to Atchison, Kansas, in 1867, whither his father had gone some years before, and there engaged in farming for two years, near the suburbs of the city. In 1869 he returned to West Virginia and engaged in the Insurance business. Possessed of great energy he was not long building up a large and profitable business.
For a number of years Major Alderson’s has been the leading insurance agency in West Virginia. He handles fire, marine, life, accident, and steam-boiler insurance. His agency companies are of the highest standing and resources, and controls a number of the most extensive fire risks in the country. In the last year or two he has added real estate to his extensive insurance business. During the past six months he has bought and sold upwards of $200,000 worth of coal and timber lands along the Norfolk and Western Railroad in the extreme Southern part of the State. He is a man of broad views upon all living questions ; is honest, enterprising, liberal, generous. No man of his means is more charitable and kinder to those that need sympathy and assistance.
He married Miss Mary, a daughter of Ex-Gov. Samuel Price, of Virginia.
Major Alderson is a popular man, but he never had much to do with politics. He has been mentioned in connection with many important official positions, but private business is more in accord with his tastes and wishes, and he has accordingly declined everything like political advancement. He was a director of the West Virginia penitentiary during the administration of Governors Matthews and Jackson; and was a West Virginia Commissioner to the Ohio Valley Centennial at Cincinnati in 1888, and at the Centennial celebration of the inauguration of George Washington as the first President of the United States, at New York, April 17, 1889.4
